How to get there: Driving on the AC-552 to Vimianzo turn to the AC-432 signposted to Ponto do Porto and Camariñas. Once in Camariñas continue on this road to the harbour, where you follow the sign for "Faro Vilan" to the right. Drive 3.5 km to a junction with information panels and a parking place. (Roadmap)

Distance: 4h25min/18.5km

Walk from the junction (30 m) a couple of steps to the information panels, where you take a path that leads to a sand road (2min) (30 m). The road goes round the cove of Arneliña with nice views of the lighthouse of Vilán and the cape of Pedrosa.

From the first lookout spot of Punta Pedrosa (30min) (60 m) you see the rock of Illa Vilán de Fóran.

The road goes on towards the beach of Pedrosa. After the beach (47min) (15 m) you see in front of you another beach called Reira. Once you reach this beach (1h) (15 m) visit the cape Forcado, which separates the beaches of  Balea and Reira (1h05min) (5 m). At the cape you find the boulder of Caudillo de Reira.

Return to the sand road, which passes a couple of houses (1h30min) (5 m) and a cross (1h38min) (5 m). You walk along the rocky coast towards the Punta de Boi.

When you encounter information panels (2h03min) (20 m), follow the sign for "Cemiterio dos Ingleses" to the left to the cape of Boi. The track goes by the rock formations of Areal de Trece before it comes to the cemetery (2h06min).

Return to the sand road, which runs above the cove of Trece. Later a yellow-white waymark guides you to the right to a track (2h26min) (115 m). Bordered by interesting rock formations the track opens up a view of the cove.

After passing a few houses, you come to a junction (3h10min) (45 m). Take the asphalt road to the right and turn right again straight after that. Walking towards the sea you come to the familiar sand road (3h20min) (15 m) and return back to the beginning of this route (4h25min).
